The Bottom Line

Keurig's most basic office model, the UL Commercial listed B140 has an underwhelming 48 oz reservoir and max 10 oz brew size, but the Drain Brewer function is handy and its sturdy build makes it great for heavy use.

Keurig B140 Overview

Intended for office use, the UL Commercial listed B140 doesn't have a ton of additional features, like Strength Control or Temp Control.

Instead, it has a different take on functionality, leveraging a brew size selector knob.

It also has a convenient Drain Brewer function, but it isn't compatible with the reusable My K-Cup.

Intended for use in small offices (Keurig arbitrarily says less than 15 people), the 48 oz water reservoir will get the job done but will need to be refilled frequently.

Like all B series Keurig brewers, the B140 is the predecessor to the K series version, the K140, and has since been discontinued.

Pros

  • UL Commercial listed
  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Drain Brewer function is awesome and makes cleaning the internal tank easy
  • Brew size knob is sturdy and easy to use

Cons

  • Discontinued model
  • Not compatible with reusable My K-Cup
  • 48 oz water reservoir is relatively small (average at best)
  • Max 10 oz brew size
  • No Strength Control or Temp Control

Is the Keurig B140 for you?

Is Keurig B140 for you?

An uncomplicated, UL Commercial listed brewer, the B140 is great for small office environments if you want to offer K-Cup convenience without breaking the bank on a big-time commercial model.

As a discontinued model that's hard to find, you'll want to get the identical K140 instead.

If you're looking for a commercial brewer with a larger reservoir, we wouldn't blame you. The B140/K140's 48 oz tank is a little underwhelming.

Instead, check out the K1500. It's Keurig's newest base commercial model that offers a ton of upgrades over the B140/K140:

  • Max 12 oz brew size
  • Massive 96 oz reservoir
  • Compatible with direct water line plumbing (no refilling!)
  • Strength Control for stronger cups (great with the 12 oz brew setting)

Just about the only thing the K1500 doesn't have, which you'll find in the B/140K140, is the Drain Brewer function.

Keurig K400

Keurig K400
Overall Rating: 87
With 10 different brew sizes up to 30 oz, a sizable 70 oz reservoir, and an intuitive color touch display, K400 series brewers made K-Cup coffee easy. Now discontinued, we recommend the Keurig K-Duo Plus instead.

Keurig K-Slim

Keurig K-Slim
Overall Rating: 86
Keurig's largest compact brewer, the 4.8" K-Slim keeps the narrow width of the K-Mini and K-Mini Plus but offers a relatively massive 46 oz water reservoir and a removable drip tray accommodating mugs up to 7" tall.

Keurig Rivo

Keurig Rivo
Overall Rating: 80
Keurig's first machine designed to brew lattes and cappuccinos, the Rivo has since been discontinued and replaced by the Keurig K-Cafe and K-Latte. We'd go with one of those, but you can still find the Rivo online.
